Chard, Lime, and Mint Smoothies

Tender Swiss chard breaks down easily in a regular blender for smoothies that need no straining. Since red chard veins can bleed color, choose green chard to keep the verdant hue. Reserve chard stems for another use.

Comments on this Recipe

why would your ruin a reasonably healthy smoothie and put lime falvoured soda in it? I fail to see the good in any soda not to mention the sugar

It's not soda! it's lime flavored club soda, it's a carbonated water with lime flavor.
